JESUS' TOMB UNVEILED AFTER YEAR-LONG RESTORATION

The news is reporting the restoration of the alleged tomb of Jesus Christ. For Roman Catholics, at least, this is one of the holiest place in all the world. The site has bee under renovation for a solid year. Now, it has been totally renovated.

Whether or not it is the actual tomb of Jesus or not matters little to many believers. What matters is the resurrection of Christ which is celebrated here. Many visitors report feeling the very presence of Christ here.

"So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." (1 Corinthians 10:31, NLT)

Wochit News reports:
Just in time for Easter, one of Christianity's holiest sites has been restored to its former glory. The tomb that (many) Christians believe was where Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected — officially known as the Holy Edicule — has undergone a year-long renovation. Gone is the cage-like structure that was put in place to prop up the walls 70 years ago. And the black soot that had accumulated on the stone structure from years of visitors' candles has been scrubbed clean. Now the warm red marble welcomes worshippers. The holy site sits inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem — one of the world's oldest churches. The shrine was in desperate need of attention after years of exposure to water, humidity and both candle smoke and wax. The total cost for the renovation was $3.7 million.
